As I mentioned in my last blog I was unsure if I was going to go to Amtgard this last weekend, well I managed to go to SIlvermoon (Aumsville, OR), my home park. It wasn’t a long visit but it was a fun visit. I was there from 1-3:30ish. I would have stayed longer but I had other plans that day.
After arriving and getting in my garb I was immediately asked by Torg to reeve a game and keep score. I of course said yes, despite the rain. Luckily it was only a wet field and not a muddy one so I didn’t have to change my shoes.
The game was pretty straight forward. It was 15 minute long game. The goal was to be the team with the most kills. Each team had a team captain and they were worth two points.
Most of the time I was just keeping score, I had little time to actually reeve, I had to stay at the base to count the deaths. It turned out to be a close game, the score was 21 points to 23. Ceian though it wouldn’t be close because the other team had a rez healer, but his team did a good job keeping her down.The team with healer did win, but as mentioned, only by 2 points.
After the game there was a bit of down time while another game was organized and people geared up. I said my good byes as I thought I would be needing to leave in the middle of their game, but after the game started it turned out my friend wasn’t ready for me to come over so I had some more time to kill.
I spent some time catching up with Ephany, which was nice. I didn’t get much time to talk with her while at Winterbash. She hasn’t been out much since she’s been sick for the last 3 weeks, but luckily she’s feeling much better.
I ended up watching the game that was being played. The goal was to free your captain. They were imprisoned by 4 cones and the team needed to get the 4 cones back to their base to free their captain. Once freed, the captain needed to get to the base, once there, a point was scored. I recorded one round which you can view HERE.
After the battle game there was some more talking. I have been considering doing up a quiz for the Shattered Kingdoms lore, which you can find on the wiki HERE. Only one person responded to that thread where I asked if I should make a quiz so I wasn’t sure if it was worth my time, but Torg thought it was a good idea so it’s something I’ll be working on over the next few weeks.
Eventually a ditch was called, it took a little time to get people to participate but eventually there was a decent amount of people playing. I recorded some of it which you can find HERE.
After recording for a bit it became time to leave. I said my good byes, again, dressed down and headed up to the Portland area.
Next week I’ll probably go to Dusk Hollow (Dallas,OR) on Sunday. I know I won’t be at our Kingdom Elections on the 29th though. I’ll be helping my grandparents move by driving down to Arizona. It’s a 20 hour drive, one I’m not really looking forward to but they need the help so I’m helping.
That week I think i’ll be writing up a post about Shattered Kingdoms. I’ve been working a lot this past week on the lore for Shattered Kingdoms and I’d like an outlet to talk about it. It’s also a good chance to hype up the event.
I’ll talk to you all next weekend!
